STRATA Skin Sciences Announces Agreement with MedResults Network, a GPO Exclusive to the Aesthetic Medical Market

Agreement will enhance sales efforts of Nordlys and STRATAPEN

HORSHAM, Pa., Oct. 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- STRATA Skin Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ:SSKN) (“STRATA”) a medical technology company in Dermatology and Plastic Surgery dedicated to developing, commercializing and marketing innovative products for the treatment of dermatologic conditions, today announced signing an Agreement with MedResults Network (MRN). MRN is a Group Purchasing Organization that has more than 3,000 members including Dermatology Offices, Plastic Surgery Practices, Facial Plastic Practices, MediSpas and other providers. MRN researches product categories and selects advantaged products and then negotiates pricing for its membership. MRN focuses on the aesthetic market and has agreements with more than 50 vendors with only one vendor per product category.

Frank McCaney, President and Chief Executive Officer of STRATA, commented, “We are pleased to announce this relationship, which we believe has major benefits to STRATA. MRN has a loyal and long-term subscriber base and a reputation for providing value to its members. MRN provides additional value to its members by offering educational seminars and value to its vendors by active promotion of the products on agreement with them.”

“Furthermore, the products that STRATA introduced earlier this year in the Aesthetic space are outstanding, technology-advantaged products but lacked broad awareness. We believe that the reach and credibility of MRN will greatly benefit our sales efforts,” continued Mr. McCaney.

Jeff Routledge, President of MRN, added, “We are excited about the opportunity to assist STRATA in marketing their products to our membership. STRATA’s Aesthetic products, Nordlys and STRATAPEN, are excellent products that are in growing sectors of the Aesthetic market. MRN’s mission is to offer our members best-in-class products from world class companies through pricing that can only be achieved by leveraging the buying power of our 3,000 member practices and medical spas.”

The relationship between MRN and STRATA, which offers special pricing to MRN members, is being fully launched to the membership this week.
